From the minute we pulled into the drive and Tessa stepped out to greet us, to the moment we said our goodbyes 3 days later (with promises to return), we were made to feel amazingly welcome, totally at home and that nothing was too much trouble. Summerwood is a beautiful residence with lovely décor and completely clean throughout. We slept... More

A very lovely setting a few blocks from downtown Stellenbosch. We stayed for a few days in July 2016, after my husband had some business in Cape Town. Tessa met us as we arrived and could not have been more informative and helpful. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and she got us a bottle of wine (Fat B**tard,... More

We stayed for three nights, our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding and included 3 hot options each morning. They even provide breakfast in our fridge the night before we left as we were departing at 4:30 AM to catch a flight out of Cape Town.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Summerwood and would recommend it to friends. Therooms were good, luxurious beds and an excellent breakfast spread. The extra touches of a lounge and drinks facilities was appreciated. I was warmly welcomed and felt at home.

We stayed 2 nights in Summerwood and it was amazing. We booked on short notice and got the one room on the third floor (I think it was nr. 8) which was amazing!! the breakfast was also great and the general service was more than excellent; they helped us with bookings and managed to fulfil all our special requests.
